At the Australian Training Institute, our aviation protection officer course gives students up-to-date knowledge of legislative requirements and procedures for dealing with aviation security issues.

Understanding and managing current security risks and threats is essential whether you work for an airline, airport, civil aviation authority, or seaport. Individuals who complete this course will have the general and specialised abilities necessary to work efficiently in various transport security screening tasks at important airports, terminals, and off-site sites.

This security awareness training course aims to give participants a fundamental grasp of the most crucial civil aviation security-related issues and a preliminary understanding of these topics. You can learn the skills necessary to help Australia’s border security by enrolling in the nationally recognised Certificate II in Transport Security Protection (International Airport Screening Officer). Keep Australia’s airports safe by learning to identify and mitigate potential threats.

Before using security-restricted resources linked to AVIG0001, candidates for this qualification must pass a background check.
